Why Invest in an Emergency Generator?
If your power goes out in Florida, it could be downright uncomfortable, and in some cases hazardous. It can make life miserable for everyone. Investing in an emergency generator is a smart idea for the following reasons:
- During a power outage, your emergency generator will kick in and make sure essential appliances stay working. For those who have sick people in their homes, this could be a lifesaver.
- After a hurricane, grocery stores will be closed indefinitely. If you didn’t stock up on enough supplies, you have to live off of whatever you have in your home, including what’s in your refrigerator. If your power goes out, your food goes bad. An emergency generator will prevent that from happening.
- With any major storm comes flooding. If you have a sump pump, you want it to work to keep your house from becoming too damaged. But if you don’t have electricity it won’t do its job.
- Unfortunately, elderly people tend to be more affected by power outages. In Florida, you have to keep as cool as possible or run the risk of a heat stroke. If your power goes out the temperature in your home soars. Having an emergency generator will keep your AC running and minimize the risk of a heat stroke.
When to Replace Your Electrical Outlets
Your electrical outlets basically run your house. But many people don’t know that sometimes you need to replace them. How do you know when it’s time to replace your electrical outlets?
- If you notice your outlets sparking when you plug in appliances, that can be a real fire hazard.
- A cracked outlet may seem innocuous but it can be a big problem for you and your household. Dust and debris can collect inside the unit and become a major issue.
- Flickering lights when you plug in an appliance could mean serious outlet issues. Don’t let the problem persist for too long. It could cost you more than just money.
- Two-pronged outlets are not grounded and should be replaced.
